When launching an EC2 instance with an instance type that supports instance storage, what use case is best for instance storage?

  • Use the instance storage to serve temporary files that require low I/O latency.
  • Use the instance storage to handle files uploaded by your users. Since it is more secure than an EBS volume, you can isolate any malicious files from infecting your server.
  • Instance storage is faster than EBS volumes, so install the root of the operating system on this volume to speed up server performance.
  • Instance storage is a deprecated option for storage and should not be used.
